MANILA, Philippines — Hundreds of residents in high-risk areas near Taal volcano that have been displaced and now living in temporary evacuation centers were recently visited by JC Cares Foundation Inc. and given relief packs to different families affected by the recent unrest of the volcano.

In the early Wednesday morning of July 7th, Taal Volcano exhibited a “phreatomagmatic eruption,” which resulted from the interaction between magma and water. This brief eruption generated a grayish dark plume estimated to went up more than 500 meters from the main crater.

With Taal volcano’s continued unrest intensifies, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) recommends the immediate evacuation of residents residing at Taal Volcano island and other nearby towns due to the imminent threat of pyroclastic materials and volcanic tsunami.

Amid the continued unrest of Taal Volcano, coupled with frequent moderate to heavy rains brought about by the southwest monsoon, JC Cares Foundation Inc. braved the weather and the possibility of another magmatic eruption, to bring vital relief packs to the residents living in various evacuation centers, that were affected by the eruption.
